If you have decided to have a breast lift, choosing the right surgeon is one of the most important decisions you will have to make. Finding the most appropriate surgeon requires time and effort, so patients need to know what to look for in a breast lift surgeon.
In order to get the best possible results, choosing the right breast lift surgeon is crucial.
What to look for in a breast lift surgeon
When choosing a plastic surgeon focus on:
- Certification by American Board of Plastic Surgery (ABPS): In order to gain certification from the ABPS, surgeons have to undergo a minimum of 3-5 years medical training, which includes 2 years of training in plastic surgery. Surgeons that are certified by the ABPS possess the necessary qualifications and advanced surgical skills to perform breast lift surgery.
- Experience performing breast lift surgery: Look for a surgeon that performs breast lift surgery regularly. Be sure to ask about the technique the surgeon will be using, to ensure that you are comfortable with it. It’s also a good idea to ask to see lots of before-and-after pictures of past breast lift patients, as this will help you assess their skill level.
- Communication and rapport: Pay attention to how the surgeon responds to your questions, and make sure they are really listening to your concerns. During consultation they should be able to provide information on vital aspects of surgery, so that you know what to expect during and after the operation.
It is also best to select a surgeon that operates in an accredited facility and has hospital privileges.
